Five Ways to Up the Awesome On Your Time in Maui

There are so many cool things you can do when you are in Maui that are stupendous in their own right, like snorkeling, surfing, scuba diving, hiking, stand-up paddleboarding, and more. But….then there are the special things, the truly awesome things, the things you will never, ever forget. These are activities you may not have even known existed, but they do.

Make your time in Maui epic by booking one of these five adventures:

Swim with Dolphins

Our spinner and bottlenose dolphins are definitely some of Maui’s most popular locals. These smart, chatty, and playful  creatures are more than happy to let you join in on the fun. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to slip into the warm ocean water and snorkel right alongside these amazing animals.

Fly A Plane

You’ve always harbored a secret passion to get into the cockpit and fly your own plane, right? (No fibbing!) Now you can at Maui Flight Academy, which provides “The most authentic flying lessons on Earth.” If you think Maui looks beautiful on the ground, just wait until you see what it looks like from the sky as you (Yes, you!) fly a private plane under the watchful eye of an instructor to Lanai, Molokai, the Big Island, or Oahu. After some time for lunch and exploration, you’ll fly back to Kahului Airport with an amazing story to share.

Ride a Motorcycle Up a Mountain

Maui’s gorgeous mountains are filled with windy roads that make them the perfect opportunity to rev your motorcycle and soar. There’s no sense in being cooped up in a car when the wind is begging to comb through your hair, and the scent of the ocean is all around you. Contact Eagle Rider Motorcycles to rent a bike or join a tour.

See a Natural Wonder

Maui is filled with beautiful beaches, gorgeous mountain views, and peaceful forests, but if you truly want a breathtaking experience, then you must visit the Seven Sacred Pools in Hana (also known as Pools of ‘Ohe’o). These amazing waterfalls aren’t considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world, but honestly they should be. You’ll feel a newfound sense of peace just watching the cascading waterfalls pour into a network of deep pools, where you can relax and enjoy the wonderment of nature. Make sure to visit the pools early in the day, as this site quickly gets crowded with visitors and local alike.

Reserve a VIP Table on Your Own Private Peninsula

After all of these amazing adventures, you are going to be hungry. Don’t settle for anything less thanperfection.. Head to a restaurant that is as classy as it is hard to pronounce:Humuhumunukunukuapua’a located within the Grand Wailea Resort. This unique restaurant is romantic and exotic and offers spectacular views, especially at sunset. You can choose your own lobster or enjoy local fish and meat delicacies. For a truly exclusive experience, reserve Table 70, which is located on its own peninsula.

Any one of these experiences will let you savor your trip to Maui in a way like no other. You only have one life to live, so make it count!
